Hundreds call for investigation of Bush administration March 2, 2007

 OLYMPIA, Wash. Hundreds of anti-war activists gathered in Olympia today to urge state lawmakers to support a resolution asking Congress to investigate the Bush administration’s handling of the Iraq war and possibly consider impeachment of the president and vice president.

Democratic Senator Eric Oemig of Kirkland, who sponsored the resolution, says it’s intended to push Congress to do a serious investigation.The Senate Committee on Government Operations and Elections also held a hearing today on another resolution asking the president and Congress not to escalate U-S involvement in Iraq. That measure is sponsored by Democratic Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles of Seattle.However, Republicans on the committee boycotted the hearing. Senate Minority Leader Mike Hewitt, a Republican from Walla Walla, issued a statement calling it a “partisan, political” display.And in the end, Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown said it’s unlikely the resolutions will move onto the Senate floor this session, because the hearing came after a key legislative cutoff deadline.  [source]
